A typical work day is that you have to remain positive at all times.No matter what the situation is.I worked with male youth from ages 12-19 that are the system.I have learned that it is not always the youths fault. And to keep an open mind.My co-workers are awesome.The hardest part of the job is when the youth don't try.The most enjoyable part of my day is the youth witha smile on his face and say I maded it through the program.
